by Vintage Advertising Collective on Tuesday, August 9, 2016

Included are three never before seen photographs of Marilyn Monroe by photographers Milton H. Greene, Allan “Whitey” Snyder and Thomas “Doc” Kaminski

In honor of Marilyn Monroe’s passing, Limited Runs has partnered with The Hollywood Museum, and other international collectors to showcase an unprecedented exhibit. “It seems fitting to have this exhibit in the same building where the platinum blonde image of Marilyn Monroe was created by makeup and hair genius – Max Factor,” remarks the Founder and President of The Hollywood Museum, Donelle Dadigan.

The exhibit features unique and never before seen photographs from the Limited Runs Collection, curated by founder and Limited Runs’ president, Pierre Vudrag.  Included are three never before seen photographs by Milton H. Greene, Allan “Whitey” Snyder and Thomas “Doc” Kaminski. On display are images from, Niagara (1952), River of No Return (1953), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), Bus Stop (1956), The Misfits (1960), and more.  “This exhibit will give fans a greater insight into the Hollywood icon by showing the real person behind the legend,” adds Vudrag.
